Yes those look very sweet as well. Of course we go go 3 x 4gb as well but timings were not as good. But in a fantasy world...

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

Learned that a couple of days ago: the 5500 only supports 1 card 5520 supports 2 cards ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

Well the GTX 295 may edge out the 5870 in pure brute force, but I've got to admit that a couple 5870's pushing 3 Monitors in Eyefinity looks like a Trump Card.
